Awesome New Amex Offer For Hilton Stays

Filed Under: American Express, Great Deals

We somewhat frequently see Amex Offers for discounts on hotel stays, in particular with Hilton and Marriott, given that Amex issues co-brand credit cards for both of those companies. We’re now seeing a new offer.

Earn Bonus Points At Hilton, Canopy Collection, & Curio With Amex Offers

At the moment there’s a new targeted Amex Offer for 5,000 bonus Amex Membership Rewards points when you spend $300 at Hilton, Curio Collection by Hilton, or Canopy by Hilton. The offer is valid for stays at participating properties through June 30, 2020.

It’s possible there’s also a version of the offer for $50 back rather than 5,000 bonus points, though I’d consider the 5,000 bonus points to be the better offer. That’s because I value Amex points at ~1.7 cents each, so to me that’s like ~$85 worth of points on a $300 purchase, which is about 28% back in the form of points.

The promotion is valid for stays at eligible properties in the US. It isn’t valid at any Hilton family brands other than the three listed above. You need to book directly with Hilton in order to be eligible for this promotion.

The terms also state “offer does not apply to advance purchase rates, including Advance Purchase, Save Now & Pay and Non-refundable rates.” I’m not sure to what degree that will actually be enforced.

Once again, this promotion is targeted, though it at least seems to be pretty widely targeted, as I see it on several cards earning Amex Membership Rewards points.

This should be combinable with all other Hilton promos, including their current global promotion offering up to triple points. Also keep in mind that separately there’s an Amex Offers deal for stays at DoubleTree by Hilton and Tapestry Collection by Hilton, and another one for stays at Conrad and Waldorf Astoria.

Was your account targeted for this new Amex Offers deal, and do you plan on taking advantage of it?

  1. As usual, I got the cash off offer on my Amex MR cards – would like to either get the cash off on the Hilton cards or the MR points offer on the Platinum

  2. Not as good, but I also had a $30 back on a $200 spend at Hampton or Hilton Garden Inn through June 30th. Didn’t see an MR version.

  3. I’m set to use 3 different AmEx cards for upcoming stay at DoubleTree resort. Two EveryDay cards for the $40 credit for $250 spend, then the $250 HH Aspire resort credit. 🙂

  4. Can you book a stay for $350 at a WA resort, get the $60 back, and get the $250 resort credit?

  5. The same thing happens to me every time. I get the cashback offers on all my cards — Plat, Gold, Blue Business Plus, etc. (even my Delta cards!) — but the points offers ALWAYS pop up on my old Blue for Business card. Seriously. Does this happen to anyone else (having points offers relegated to a single card)? After my bonus payout this spring, I’m finally going to close it and fold the credit line into my Blue Business Plus. I guess we’ll see where the points offers go after that…

  6. “The terms also state “offer does not apply to advance purchase rates, including Advance Purchase, Save Now & Pay and Non-refundable rates.” I’m not sure to what degree that will actually be enforced.”

    Seeing as these rates are charged for US properties by Hilton’s corporate advance purchase department rather than the hotel directly, I’d guess that they will be strongly enforced, if only because Amex can’t tell the hotel for which the charge will be made.

  7. What if you also enrolled in the Hilton brand hotels in Hawaii promo, and use the card in Hawaii? Do you double dip? If not, which takes precedence?
